Need I say more? In a last ditch effort to save a career that started fast and furious, The "former comedian" has now fallen so deep into the abyss that he's become the Conservative
jokester analyst for the FOX Opinion Channel to assure him a steady paycheck....Pathetic.
After getting his butt kicked by Chris Dodd, BillO needed someone to come on and validate his point of view. The fact that Dodd knew about his Coit Tower and anti-San Francisco statements surprised him and so he tried to use the usual trick out of the Conservative handbook. He didn't deny his remarks, but tried to confuse the issue about where he said it originally.
Miller is just the "yes-man" for the job and actually said that Dodd sandbagged O'Reilly! I'm not making this up..Maybe he has regained his sense of humor after all....He had the nerve to call Dodd a hack and he said that Chris never read the Daily Kos....I guess he used the washed up comic's trusty crystal ball for that one. I met him once backstage in Santa Barbara after a show I played in '03 and he sucked up to the band, but seemed friendly enough at the time. Who knew he was destined for the loving arms of O'Reilly? (Bill's SF antics below the fold)
“If you want to ban military recruiting, fine. But I’m not going to give you another nickel of federal money,” O’Reilly said. “If I’m the president of the United States, I walk right into Union Square, I set up my little presidential podium and I say, ‘Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you’re not going to get another nickel in federal funds.’”
“If Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we’re not going to do anything about it,” he continued. “We’re going to say, ‘look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.“
Those remarks haven’t gone unnoticed.
"Consider the source," said San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. “There are a lot of people that love their country, and embrace the military, but that doesn't mean…that people of San Francisco can't stand up and say ‘hey, there may be some issues, and we want to send a policy statement that raises awareness.’”
O’Reilly has attacked Newsom in the past, but this time the Mayor says he has taken things too far.
